Central Nebraska Resource Facilitator Sheila Kennedy along with Western Nebraska Resource Facilitator MenDi McCuiston attended the ribbon cutting and said the group started in Lincoln and Omaha in 2019, but wanted to expand services across the state.
According to the BIA-NE website, BIA-NE helps individuals with brain injuries rebuild their lives, restore purposeful living, and rebuild hope and optimism. Serving the brain injury population means working to secure and develop community-based services, providing support groups and access to pertinent information and medical resources and service referrals. It also means educating professionals who work with children and adults with brain injury.
